Product Description

Lens Heaven (GK214) has a secret that it may or may not reveal. A matt, chrome-coloured strap is stubbled with lens-like bubbles, which upon closer inspection yield scenes of intense colour and hushed elegance reminiscent of hand-painted miniatures. The watch glass is fitted with six magnifying lenses that draw the eye to colourful, everyday objects on the dial. Bright, sleek and subtle by turns, the work’s light body and barely-there feeling capture a signature characteristic of Swatch. Boym’s understated, impeccable style gives this piece both a light-hearted air and quiet dignity and presence.
